Living in a Material World:
How the Surfaces that Surround You Affect What You Breathe

Richard L. Corsi, PhD, P.E.
The University of Texas at Austin



From infancy to twilight years, the air that we breathe and surfaces that we touch inside buildings have a substantial impact on our lifetime exposure to air pollution, including pollution of outdoor origin. As such, there is value in understanding the processes that affect the sources and fate of air pollutants indoors, with a goal of manipulating these processes to improve the air that we breathe.

An important feature of indoor atmospheres is the relatively large ratio of surface area to volume of air, particularly in comparison to the same ratio for the outdoor atmosphere. From building materials to architectural coatings, flooring to furniture, and HVAC system components to human occupants, indoor surfaces vary considerably from one another and within and between buildings. These surfaces are sources of air pollutants and reservoirs (sinks) onto and into which pollutants deposit and persist. They contain reaction sites that permanently remove pollutants while forming others. Importantly, indoor materials and their surfaces are dynamic, with changes that occur over time scales of minutes to decades and that can dramatically influence surface interactions with pollutants in indoor air.

This presentation will begin with a discussion of the importance of indoor air quality, including the broader impacts associated with its improvement. The importance of indoor materials and their impacts on indoor air quality will be explored using examples from past and ongoing research that reflect different interfacial phenomena and influencing factors. The potential for smart use of materials for improvement of indoor air quality will also be discussed as a rich topic for future research.

There are materials around you that are affecting the amount and nature of pollutants that you are inhaling as you read this abstract. Get to know them.

Vancouver, British Columbia, with its stunning backdrop of mountains and sea, is a multi-cultural, dynamic metropolis and seaport with a population of almost two-and-a-half million. The city is known for its high-density urban planning, mixed-use anti-sprawl development, exciting architecture, and numerous parks and public open spaces. Based on its location, scenic beauty, cultural diversity and urban amenities, Vancouver is widely considered to be one of the most livable cities in the world.

Advanced Architectural Design Studio: Comprehensive design of a large, mixed-use public building for a site on Granville Island, our home base.

Kinetic Architecture Design Seminar (advanced technical elective): Students will design a kinetic mechanism for a building. This is architecture-in-motion.

Advanced Media for Design Development: 3D modeling and animation using Solidworks & SoftImage.

Nancy Shaver: “50 Years: Learning To Be An Artist”

“I am an artist, and collector of visual sensation. Observation, for me, is a critical tool for identifying spaces between mass culture and the individual. Daily errands, chores, and daily exchanges for carrying out getting from A to B are the vehicle for examination. For me, art takes place in these gaps. Specific gaps which define a present situation, personal or global which is always moving. Moving fast, out of grasp, constant flowing information, changing always. Art, for me, happens in conjunction with decoration, and is always fighting decoration. The activity of the agreement of art and decoration, or the battle of it are truly engaging for me.” - Nancy Shaver

Nancy Shaver is faculty at the Milton Avery School of Graduate Studies, Bard College. Shaver's work was presented in a solo show at Derek Eller Gallery in summer 2016. She has been part of the Greater New York show 2015 MoMA PS 1, Queens, NY as well as in Robert Gober's "The Heart Is Not a Metaphor" at MoMA, New York, NY. She currently has work in VIVA ARTE VIVA! the 57th Venice Biennale 2017. She has received a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, Louis Comfort Tiffany Award, and Anonymous Was A Woman award. She has been in collaboration with Maximilian Goldfarb and Allyson Strafella to present art in an experimental viewing station in Hudson, New York called Incident Report for the last 10 years. Shaver lives and works in Jefferson and Hudson, New York.
